    Hi there,
    I just have a quick question and wondering if I can receive some advice on here.. I feel like i have extenuating circumstances but no evidence and I'm applying to uni this year. Dentistry course
    Not sure what to do since I have no evidence to prove that I was suffering from depression because I didn't seek any help etc, also didn't miss a single day of school so kinda looks like I'm fine even though I am/was not

    I m sorry, i m afraid universities will need some form of evidence for them to consider any circumstances.

    Sometimes you can go to your Dr. and explain what has happened and how this is also causing you a lot of stress.

    Him writing a letter may be enough evidence.

    Some places ask for a personal statement from yourself explaining the situation.

    It would be best to go to the advice line at the university and ask their point of view.
